c/o McClatchy-Tribune,  

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles will hold a hearing Friday on a proposal to make a new high-security driver’s license optional.

The hearing will be held at 9 a.m. in Room 4412 of the Sawyer Building in Las Vegas, and will be teleconferenced to Room 3137 of the Legislative Building in Carson City.

To prevent a legislative committee from killing the Real ID licensing system entirely, DMV Director Edgar Roberts announced Monday that he would issue a new regulation to make the licenses optional.

Under the proposal, which would return to the Legislative Committee on Licensing for final approval, motorists would decide whether to get a regular license or the new license, which requires a birth certificate, Social Security card, proof of address and other identification.
